Buccaneers QB coach Clyde Christensen told reporters that QB Kyle Trask is the developmental quarterback, making Blaine Gabbert the backup to Tom Brady. "It's more of a learning curve," said Christensen. "I don't see him competing with Gabbert this year."
At this point, Trask appears to be clinging to fantasy value in dynasty formats, especially if Gabbert stays with Tampa Bay as long as Tom Brady is around.
TB QB Tom Brady - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at New York Jets
Tom Brady wasn't great last week in a tough matchup vs. the Panthers, but he wasn't terrible. Brady finished with 232 pass yards and a touchdown with no turnovers. It's just the fourth time this season he's failed to score multiple touchdowns in a game, and it's his second game in a row doing so. Both games were against tough defenses, but in both games he was also without his top receiving threats in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Evans had a light return to practice this week, although he remains on the COVID list. There is a small chance he's able to play, which would be a nice boost to Brady. Even if Evans doesn't play, Brady should be able to have a productive week in a favorable matchup vs. the Jets, who have given up the 5th-most average fantasy points to QBs. Brady should be viewed as a must-start QB1 in Week 17.
